In the end, the trade is considered a candidate for the worst Maple Leafs trade ever. Although Sittler only netted another 205 career points in 252 games before retiring, the return for the fan favourite was lackluster. Ihnacak had a promising rookie season with 66 points, but then quickly faded away. Costello played 12 career NHL games. Strong played 15 career games.

Strong would fall out of favour with Maple Leafs management, as the Leafs wanted Strong to add pugilistic elements to his game. After a shoulder injury, Strong would not return to the NHL after the 84-85 season. Strong went overseas in 1987-88 to play in Austria. Strong eventually became a dual-citizen and played for Austria in the 1994 Olympics.
